After suffering a heart-breaking loss at home to Carroll this past Thursday, the Charles Henderson volleyball team returned to the court Monday afternoon looking to bounce back.

That would not be the case, however.

Last Tuesday, the Trojans traveled to Highland Home High School and won in four games.

The Flying Squadron returned the favor on Monday afternoon at CHHS, winning in four games, 28-26, 25-15, 21-25 and 25-16.

“We couldn’t get anything together,” head coach Jennifer Sikes said Monday night.

“If anything was going wrong, it would go wrong on our side – (the girls) could just never get it going.”

Lauren Debruyne finished with 19 total points in the match, nine of which came in the first game of the match.

Allison Lecory also contributed, collecting seven-straight points during a game.

“I thought our play at the net was not what it had been,” Sikes said.

‘They had a couple of girls that played better (than the first time the two teams played) but I think they just came ready to play and we didn’t.”

As the team had on Monday, CHHS will have a chance to get back on track today, when it plays host to Russell County.

And even though the Trojans have suffered two difficult losses at home, the coach said she believes the team has not facing any kind of setbacks.

“We just got to put this one behind us,” she said.

“We play a good Russell County team, and while they are not an area team, they are a region team.

“All we can do now, is learn from our mistakes and hopefully leave the last two games behind and come out ready to play,” Sikes added.

Before the varsity matches, the JV was able to take care of business, sweeping HHHS in both games, 25-12 and 25-19.
